No recipe image available.This pretty dessert is also easy to achieve with ready-made frozen phyllo dough sheets and fresh fruit.

Recipe Ingredients:

12 sheets frozen, thawed phyllo pastry
Butter flavor vegetable cooking spray
1 1/2 pounds peaches, peeled, pitted, sliced
1/4 pound plums, pitted, sliced

Fruit Sauce:
1 cup sliced strawberries or 2 cups raspberries

Cooking Directions:

  1. Cut phyllo into (24) 8-inch squares.
  2. Spray 4 phyllo squares lightly with vegetable spray; layer squares, turning each slightly so that corners are staggered. Carefully fit phyllo into 8-ounce custard cup, shaping edges to form "nest". Repeat with remaining phyllo squares.

  4. Cool on wire racks; carefully remove "nests" from custard cups. Serve warm or room temperature with Fruit Sauce.
  5. For Fruit Sauce: Purée berries in blender or food processor. If using raspberries, strain and discard seeds. Stir Equal® Spoonful™ into purée. Refrigerate until serving time. Makes 1 cup.

Makes 6 servings.
